Global Immersions


MBA@UNC Global Immersion in Istanbul: Day Two

When asked what he advice he would give a new MBA@UNC student, recent graduate D’Andre Payne said, “Go to as many Global Immersions as you possibly can. Having the opportunity to go somewhere, learn something and meet your fellow classmates and cohorts face-to-face — that’s something you can’t get from any other program.”

MBA@UNC Global Immersion in Istanbul: Day One

On September 12, 2013, 84 MBA@UNC students arrived in Turkey to participate in the Istanbul Global Immersion. Titled “East Meets West,” together they will explore Turkey’s unique role as a growing economy that sits on the physical and cultural divide between Europe and the Middle East.

Putting a Focus on Student Innovation

Students focused on ideation, rapid prototyping, selling the concept and refining it based on “investor” feedback, and the teams came up with some impressive ideas along the way. We posted each product concept on Quirky.com, an online innovation marketplace that helps take great ideas from concept to reality. Their ideas are posted under Action Learning and are open for the public to vote and comment on.

Connecting the Dots in Unexpected Places - My Immersion Weekend Experience

Who would ever think that a tech Giant like Google could be compared to a drug and rehabilitation facility? Although disparate in their mission, size-, and structure, I learned that you can connect the dots in the most unlikely places. This was just one of many takeaways from our recent Immersion Weekend in San Francisco.

Student Voices: My Immersion Weekend Experience

They say time flies when you’re having fun. That couldn’t be truer for me as an MBA@UNC student. We are now more than half way through the quarter and my cohort is a third of the way through the entire program. It’s hard to believe we’re only a month away from the next immersion weekend in San Francisco since I’ve only just begun to process the experience of the first one we had in December.
